Port Safaga Information

The therapeutic resort town on the shore of the Red Sea is a small port that is famous for being a phosphate export centre and is a widely inspired tourist destination due to its inland wonders and geographical conception.

History Of Port Safaga

The town was found in 282 BC and was originally called ‘Philotera’ during the Greek era. And later it became a trading post during the Islamic era.

Due to its unpolluted atmosphere, black sand-dunes and mineral springs, the resort town have been known to provide the remedy of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.

Although, this small and thriving tourism town specialises in water sports such as scuba diving, windsurfing and so on. Once, it was a popular merchant hub and now continuing its legacy, Safaga is a pretty popular tourist destination nowadays.
